Lionsgate Covers Both Light & Dark With Comedy ‘Knives Out’ & Impactful ‘Bombshell’ – The Contenders NY
Lionsgate brought the disturbing and the funny to Deadline’s Contenders today with a look at Bombshell and Knives Out. Producer Margaret Riley said the Bombshell script blew her away. “As a woman who has come up in Hollywood, I realized there had never been a movie about sexual harassment.” “We have all had to deal with it in some way and had to be one of the boys and not raise our hand for fear of losing our jobs,” she said. Writer/producer Charles Randolph wants the film to be as revelatory for men as it is recognizable by women. He was shocked by “the granular details” of how sexual harassment works. The film’s story predates and presages the Harvey Weinstein scandal and subsequent #metoo explosion by several years. Directed by Jay Roach, it stars Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman as Fox News Channel colleagues Megyn Kelly and Gretchen Carlson.
